Definitely did some feasting at Bagatelle the other night for dinner at a blogger event. Bagatelle has long been associated with a party atmosphere, flowing champagne, and bright sparklers, but I have got to say, the food is absolutely delicious. Quality is great. Presentation is on point. Taste is wonderful. After dining there, I’m a bit surprised I don’t hear more about food being associated with the Bagatelle brand because it should be.
Before I go on to show pictures of the dishes we devoured, I would like to make a suggestion. Comb your hair, slap on some makeup, and wear a nice outfit when you go there. Not only is the décor stunning, but the staff looks like they were all scouted from Wilhelmina and Ford modeling agencies. Some of their faces are so perfectly sculpted, you will wonder if you’re dining on the set of a Gucci shoot.
